Whose Kingdom are you Building?
We all have a significant effect on the world around us. As Christ indicated when he said, “If you are not with me, you are against me,” if we are not intentionally and sacrificially collaborating with God to further His “kingdom” then we are inadvertently working against Him. The goal of this sermon series is to convey the mindsets and principles which characterize people who successfully advance the Kingdom of God.

Trials and spiritual attack will consistently test the strength of our dedication to God (as opposed to ourselves), to God’s way (as opposed to our way) and God’s heart (as opposed to our heart.) The path of a kingdom builder requires humility, endurance, forgiveness, and repentance. But the lives of David and Saul demonstrate that seeking first the kingdom of God leads to permanent impact.[/toggle]
